Any suggestions?

This code implements a kind of sparse array. It indexes 10 million MD5s using 32-bit integers using 261MB.

(Wrapping it over in a nice API is left as an exercise :):

#! perl -slw use strict; use Digest::MD5 qw[ md5 ]; use Devel::Size qw[ total_size ]; use Time::HiRes qw[ time ]; $|++; our $N //= 10e6; my $inc = int( 2**32 / $N ); my @lookup; my $c = 0; my $start = time; for( my $i = 0; $i < 2**32; $i += $inc ) { my $key = $i & 0xfffff; my $md5 = md5 $i; $lookup[ $key ] .= pack 'Va16', $i, $md5; ++$c; } printf "Insertion took: %f seconds\n", time() - $start; print "$c md5s indexed"; $start = time; my( $hits, $misses ) = ( 0,0 ); for( my $i = 0; $i < 2**32; $i += $inc ) { my $key = $i & 0xfffff; my $md5 = md5 $i; my $p = 0; while( $p = 1+index $lookup[ $key ], pack( 'V', $i ), $p ) { next if ( $p - 1 ) % 20; $md5 eq substr( $lookup[ $key ], $p+3, 16 ) ? ++$hits : ++$misses; last; } } printf "\nLookup took: %f seconds\n", time() - $start; print "hits:$hits misses:$misses"; printf "Memory: %f MB\n", total_size( \@lookup ) / 1024**2; __END__ C:\test>1018287 -N=10e6 Insertion took: 30.009396 seconds 10011579 md5s indexed Lookup took: 39.267018 seconds hits:10011579 misses:0 Memory: 261.147011 MB C:\test>1018287 -N=20e6 Insertion took: 59.107169 seconds 20069941 md5s indexed Lookup took: 88.747249 seconds hits:20069941 misses:0 Memory: 426.243149 MB

Should blow away any disc-based DB mechanism.

      It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
